The English Prime Minister has said that he is separately drafting a new owners’ book to avoid future attempts to join the European Super League (ESL), while police have launched an investigation into the protest that Manchester United’s match against Liverpool was delayed. EPL will announce plans for a new license to avoid Super League repeat.
England First League is drafting a new owner’s charter to avoid future attempts to join a European separatist Super League (ESL) while police launch an investigation into the protests that led to the postponement of the Manchester United vs Liverpool match. The Premier League has said that a new date for the match will be announced in “due time”.
Fans attacked Old Trafford and fled the field as part of a demonstration against the US-based joint owners, the family Glazer, on Sunday. Manchester Police said one of their officers required emergency treatment at the hospital. According to a Manchester Police statement, two officers were injured, one “attacked with a bottle and sustained a significant wound to the face that required emergency treatment at the hospital.”
ESL has sought to guarantee top-level European football for the 15 founding members of each season without the need to qualify on the field. All six English clubs involved in ESL training – Arsenal Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur – were asked to face penalty points.
The Premier League said it was “determined” to hold “clubs” responsible for those decisions and actions on Monday. EPL also announced plans for a new charter, with all club owners following a rule that “forced the league to follow the necessary principles”, with violations punishable by “significant” sanctions. “The events of the last two weeks have challenged the foundation and determination of English football. These measures are to prevent the threat of a separatist league in the future,” the statement read.
Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson, on Monday during a campaign trip to the northeastern English city of Hartlepool where the by-elections are held on 6 May, said: “I don’t think disruptive behavior, such demonstrations are good. But on the other hand, I understand the power of people’s emotions. And I think it’s a good thing that we are able to do things that are very clear that the European Super League will not be appreciated by the people of this country or this government.”
